  1. Sorry a little late to this conversation. When my head let go many of the cracks also were originating from the water jackets. Leading me to believe that the technology is just a little too old or bleeding edge for the day to function properly 30 years forward. I truly admire you for trying to go bigger on HP. My car is finally coming together, but I'm really at a crossroads. Parts availability in general is killing my desire to keep the car. If the engine lets go, maybe a swap. These cars are like Jay Leno's strange orphan cars that can only survive and thrive with his resources. Like Anj's Porsche brake swap to deal with the unobtanium rotors, keeping some of the original Peugeot stuff is getting harder and harder. Especially if you're going to be breaking parts. And if you ain't breaking parts, you ain't trying hard enough to go faster. This kindda squirrels away from the original question you posed. I plan on using the current best practices for keeping my head alive as long as possible. I, unfortunately don't have anything else to offer.
  2. Rabin, You've done this, right? Could you confirm? Thanks!
  3. Have a call into Brian Holm for a set of fog lights. However, that might not happen. What would my options be? Are there any options that look close to period correct? Aren't ours rear-mount Bosch units? Share what you've done!
  4. Hi all, I'm going through my relay box making it new and now is the time to fuse that wire. Is this the one, right? Fan shouldn't draw any more than 10 amps, right? Thanks!
  5. Ah, this is going sideways on me. I replace the ignitor and coil with Wells/Airtex units. They are DOA. I fell for their videos on how they are so quality driven. It gets better, I got them from RockAuto. I'm not even going to waste my breath with them. I should have known. Old Bosch stuff just isn't for sale the the US. I can't find these parts. Anybody know something I don't here? I swear, this is the one thing that get me out of these cars. The damn parts situation.
  6. Title says it all. I want to replace the ignition control module in my 87 Turbo S (N9TE). I don't have confidence that the units I have are oem. I have the Peugeot number, but not the Bosch one and I can't find the Peugeot unit anyware. (surprise!) Found the Standard Motor LX621 and Airtex 6H1226 on RockAuto, but I'd rather buy a Genuine Bosch one if possible. Thanks,
  7. Hi all, Hope October is starting out well for everybody. Lining up jobs on the 87 505 turbo that need to be done. And this is a "maybe" job. The old shift knob disintegrated in my hand a few years ago and the car wasn't my daily driver so I waited in replacing it. Now, it's running much better and I want to get it 100% road worthy. I got a knob from Brian Holm but the shifter itself is a little discolored. I'd like to have it refinished before putting another knob on it as the knobs aren't really made to go on and off. Rabin, didn't you pull one insitu before? Thanks!

  9. Hey all, Long time no see. Actually, I've been lurking all this time. I figure if I don't have anything to contribute, why consume precious seconds. Anyway, this this site out: http://www.theparking-cars.com/used-cars/peugeot-505.html In The Netherlands and France mostly. 8-9K for a nice 505. Not too bad. My 505 is doing OK. Still have to do; sunroof cable (no parts), front wheel bearings (have all the parts) and get it running better (I think ignition) (bought distributor off Brian Holm). Really wanted to get it back this summer but have been très enterré.

    This is the problem. There are a handful of people who like Peugeots. Like them enough to own one and put up with the associated hassles. The truth is, most Peugeot owners are Peugeot owners because they couldn't afford a Citroen. Peugeot suffers from the "Renault syndrome". They will never be popular so they will never be worth much. No one saves them. It's been over two years since I've seen a Mi16 for sale. I think I saw a mint 505 turbo on Bring a Trailer and it sold for like 5K. We have the European equivalent of the "Hupmobile". I'd love to buy another mint Mi16, but I have one Peugeot and wife said that's enough. If I get rid of my 505 turbo, I'm getting a DS or SM. Don't get me wrong. I really like Peugeots and really like my car. But...
  11. Hey! This is great news Mike! How appropriate that a guy who really would appreciate this more than anyone would get this chance. Make sure you insure it properly when it's done and drive and enjoy it! Awesome!

    That sure sounds like a friction sound. Does the pitch raise with the RPMS?
